Spring has Sprung - Top Five New Spring 2012 Products

First day of Spring is officially here and it is a beautiful day! In honour of this, here are my 'Top Five' favourite beauty products to get the Spring 2012 looks:

Benefit's new Hervana face powder - in order to get the glowing, flawless skin seen all over the catwalks, opt for this new beauty! Said to give an 'enlightened flush' (whatever that is!), this new product has been getting great reviews and at only £23.50 it is a great basic to look springly fresh!

Laura Mercier Lingerie Palette - I'm a little biased with this maybe as I love anything by Laura Mercier! But this new edition to the range for this Spring really is beautiful. A limited edition product, this palette gives you colours to use for both eyes and cheeks. They are very soft colours to give you a gorgeously sophisticated look. £41.50

OPI Holland Collection for Spring 2012 - OPI have come up trumps yet again with their spring nail varnishes, inspired by the Dutch way of life. With the OPI trademark of unique names such as 'Did you 'ear about Van Gogh?' and 'Kiss Me on My Tulips' my favourite has to be 'I Don't Give a Rotterdam!'. A dusky blue varnish, it gives your nails a distinct pastel colour which is definitely not boring! A sure-fire winner as everyone will be asking you where you got it from. Typical OPI high quality priced at £11

Maybelline Falsies Flared Mascara - brows had their moment but lashes are always going to centre stage for most women's make-up looks. The new mascara by Maybelline is certain to give you killer lashes without having to fiddle with false ones. Curling and lengthening with a new spoon brush and secret 'curler formula' Maybelline have yet again led the mascara field! Affordable and dependable, Falsies Flared is a new beauty essential and only £7.99

L'Oreal Rouge Caresse lipstick - last but by no means least, we have the new lipstick from L'Oreal. Available in ten different shades, they promise this range is super-lightweight and kind to lips. I have to admit I haven't yet tried this but it gets great reviews on other blogs and I'm out to buy one today...I'm thinking the 'Impulsive Fuschia'! I usually have a problem with lipsticks in that they tend to dry out my lips and I can really 'feel' the lipstick on my lips and so tend to rub or lick it off. In their new range, L'Oreal promise to give a hint of colour with a fantastic shine without you feeling it at all. If you already have one of these let me know what you think! £7.99



  1. I have one of the lipsticks and I absolutely adore it! I got the coral shade and it's so smooth and creamy yet really pigmented :)

  2. Fantastic! I got the fuschia in the end and love it...I might get the coral too though! xx
